I got a can of this beer off the single shelf from my local Giant Eagle store. It poured a hazy golden with very thin white ring head that is not leaving much lace. The scent had subtle guava and stone fruit notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with bright guava and berry presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a decent beer.

For a beer that can be bought in a 15 pack it's very good. I like it with all kinds of food and straight out of the can. Not a perfect beer but one I prefer to drink all the time. Great flavor, excellent finish and inexpensive.

Normally I would never buy this, but I love Guava, so figured how bad could it be - Cheap enough for a cold daily drinker on a hot day in a frosted glass -
It poured ok with a foamy head and golden straw color - smelled fruity, but nothing overwhelming - very thin for me based on my regular selection, but again it’s doable when your hot and thirsty -
Not the greatest beer I ever had, but for $11 a sixer it’s going to work itself out -
CHEERS !!

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a hazy golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is bursting with sweet guava. Taste is of guava, pink bubble gum, sweet, very little bitterness for an AIPA. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

12oz can. Poured out a slightly cloudy, golden orange color with a small, off-white head of foam. It left sticky rings of lace on the glass. It smelled of sweet guava, orange, caramel and toffee. Sweet guava taste. Very sweet. Some caramel taste. Very little bitterness.

Very sweet, like cotton candy or Sweet Tarts, and light-bodied for summer. This is, however, winter.

Pours a clear straw yellow with a thick white cap that falls away quickly but leaves decent lacing. Aroma is faint guava and grain. Flavor follows the nose with a bit more authority, the sweetness of the guava followed by a good amount of hops in the finish. Feel is light bodied and almost a bit watered down. Overall a nice enough beer but not one I'd search for.
